You may have heard of hormone therapy, but what is it?
Hormones are chemical messengers that communicate to your body when something is wrong. Hormone therapy is a form of treatment for those who have hormonal imbalances, either due to aging or medical conditions like PCOS or menopause. Hormones can also help with weight loss, mood stabilization, and even skin issues such as acne and rosacea. Today, we’ll discuss hormone therapy and whom it may benefit.
What is hormone therapy?
Hormone therapy is the process of replacing, or supplementing, hormones that are naturally occurring in the body. This process is typically done by taking creams or pellets to replace what your body lacks and achieve an even balance of hormone levels so you can feel better about yourself again!
Hormones are one of the languages of energy or chi found within the body. In terms of the metaphysical realm, energy is translated into what we know as hormones in our physical body. Virtues can generate chi, and having negative thoughts and emotions can deplete our bodies of this energy or chi. Over time, this can lead to decreased hormone production and output. Having the appropriate hormone levels in your body can lead you to look and feel more youthful. Hormones are crucial for maintaining strong vitality.
Who may benefit from hormone therapy?
Doctors recommend looking into this form of treatment when dealing with any of these conditions:
–Postmenopausal women are at higher risk of developing osteoporosis and heart disease due to low estrogen levels.
-Women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) whose hormones have become unbalanced, which is often associated with weight gain, acne on the face or back, infertility in some cases, oily skin or scalp hair loss.
-Anyone experiencing depression as a result of hormonal changes such as menopause or aging that’s not responding well enough to medication alone.
When to get help for hormones
If you notice any signs such as changes in moods, weight gain/loss (or trouble with maintaining it), hot flashes, and other symptoms like acne or irritability, then speak to your doctor about getting tested. Your doctor can perform tests to determine if there is anything wrong with your hormone levels before suggesting treatment options. In addition, anyone experiencing depression as a result of hormonal changes should also look into getting help for hormonal balance issues.
